    How a blower door works is a technical matter to really understand but basically it’s main concerns are the ventilation and air quality as mentioned above. Is a building’s indoor space too tight? Too loose? How much heating or air conditioning is leaking?


    An infiltrometer or blower door fan is usually placed in the main entry doorway to suck out air from the inside, depressurizing the indoor air. As the fan is running, the technician will check for air leaks in different areas of your home or office. You can hear it or even see it. Heatless smoke tools can pinpoint where exactly the leak is located. There’s also a camera that can detect temperature differences.


    Once a blower door professional mounts the blower door, runs it, and it sees that there is air leakage, a professional can seal using Spray Foam Insulation.

We have the advanced and latest technology such as a blower door that could accurately detect air leakage. Once there is, indeed, air leakage, you don’t have to call anyone else. For almost two decades, Harris has been entrusted to do the job and he never disappoints.




    Air leakage is not something you should tolerate. In fact, it is a problem you must address right away.Here are some of the reasons why:


    1. It reduces your energy bills


      Air leakages cause your HVAC systems to be inefficient resulting to rising energy bills. Spray Foam Insulation closes the gaps and holes that results to air infiltration and leaks. 40% of the building’s entire energy is wasted through air infiltration. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star says that you can reduce your energy bills by 20% if you can insulate your building with spray foam. Your HVAC is said to be 56% of your total bill and if there are leaks, your HVAC can’t be very efficient.


    2. Seal off drafty areas in your home


      Draft areas in your home includes your baseboards, headers, sill plates, and even around your windows and doors, your house pipes and electrical outlets. These are areas that you need to insulate and air seal. Open-cell or semi-rigid Spray Foam Insulation is usually the solution.


    3. It addresses ineffective cooling and heating


      Uncontrolled air flow messes with both temperature and pressure of your indoor air. It is a major discomfort. Your HVAC is inefficient when there is air infiltration. Your walls may even condense and the temperature may be very erratic not to mention cold and hot spots in your house or office. It is not very sustainable.


    4. It prevents infestation and pests


      Molds, mildew, and bugs can make their way inside your house. Not to mention that it is proven that bad air quality can encourage bacterial and fungal growth. It’s very dangerous and unhealthy. Be proactive and take the necessary steps. This is not a matter that should be shrugged off. Your home or office must be a comfortable living or working space. You and the other people in your home or office will most likely be allergic to molds and fungi.
      Spray Foam Insulation can also deter the breeding of cockroaches, ants, termites, and even rodents. It prevents these pests from entering sealed premises. Learn more about our affordable spray foam insulation services in New Orleans.


    5. Spray foam absorbs sound


      Specifically, the Open-Cell Spray Foam Insulation is great for sound absorption and transmission. Since spray foam seals the area, it can effectively contain the sound within. It has amazing acoustic properties. Mid-range frequencies such as your voice or the music from your stereo can be controlled. Spray foam is known to have superior auditory controlling capabilities.
